The Cheshire Cookery School is a lovely place – all hi-tech induction hobs, super sharp knives and friendly staff, tucked away behind a kitchen showroom which induces serious kitchen envy! So I was chuffed to bits when they invited me to attend their tapas and paella class a couple of weeks ago.

The class led by chef Kurt Thomas is aimed at people who want to get more confident in the kitchen. Kurt is a great teacher- he explains what he is doing and how to do it with humour and patience. It wasn’t just about making a meal – he also shared knife skills and tips to make life in the kitchen better.
